Showing how much one Colorado city loves its bikes, cyclists who go to the hospital by ambulance no longer have to leave their rides behind. Poudre (POO'-dur) Valley Hospital in Fort Collins, home of Colorado State University, has equipped all 14 of its ambulances with bike racks after encountering increasing numbers of cyclists who had bicycle accidents or medical emergencies while riding. Some people were reluctant to leave their bikes locked up behind at the scene - whether because they were fancy recreation bikes that cost more than some cars or because they were the patient's main form of transportation, Steve Main, the hospital's emergency medical services director, said Friday. Plus, ambulance workers were spending too much time going back to unlock the bikes once patients could retrieve them.

Former Rabobank cycling team doctor Geert Leinders was banned for life on Thursday for multiple doping violations during his time with the Dutch squad. The Belgian was punished for violations committed while he was working with Rabobank from 1996 to 2009, before he joined Team Sky. The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency announced that a three-member American Arbitration Association panel found Leinders ''possessed, trafficked, and administered banned performance-enhancing substances and methods without any legitimate medical need ... to athletes under his care, and was complicit in other anti-doping rule violations.'' USADA, which worked on the case with anti-doping authorities in Denmark and the Netherlands, said Leinders was involved in doping with EPO, blood transfusions, testosterone, insulin, DHEA, corticosteroids, and other substances.

Former Rabobank and Team Sky doctor Geert Leinders has been banned for life for multiple doping violations, the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) said on Thursday. Leinders was banned for offences committed when he was the chief team doctor and a board member for Dutch outfit Rabobank between 1996 and 2009. He was at the team in 2007 when Dane Michael Rasmussen was expelled from the Tour de France while in the yellow jersey for evading doping controls. He worked for Team Sky on a part-time basis from 2010, but his contract was not renewed two years later and team principal Dave Brailsford later described his appointment as a mistake.
